Joe Defranco with the Ottawa Police Service has gone above the call of duty when many of us living in a senior's residence in the Carlington area had issues with prostitutes and drug houses. He worked closely with the neighbours, reassuring all the residences that he would monitor the issue. He even made several house calls to the neighbours to provide regular updates, even a couple of times on his day off.
It took 2 or more years and not only did he close down a brothal and got rid of the drug dealers, a lot of the prostitutes have now left the area and we have no reports of drug houses anymore. This is what happens when you have a dedicated police officer who is committed to their job. Constable Joe has greatly improved the living conditions in our area of Ottawa.
